The current visit to Vietnam by a delegation of the Nicaraguan Sandinista National Liberation Front (FSLN) aims to boost relations between the two countries as well as cooperation between the Communist Party of Vietnam (CPV) and the Nicaraguan party.

“Increasing delegation visits at all levels is important to cooperation between the two parties,” FSLN’s Foreign Relations Secretary Jacinto Suarez said during an interview granted to Vietnam News Agency.

Jacinto Suarez, who is also Chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee of Nicaragua’s National Assembly, added that visit exchange helps promote the sharing of information, theory and experience on developmental issues in the new situation as well as issues of mutual concern between the two parties.

FSLN and CPV have enjoyed a time-honoured relationship that has gone through 50 years, the visiting official said.

He expressed his impression with robustly growing Vietnam where people are leading a happy and prosperous life, suggesting the two countries defining agriculture and science-technology as potential cooperation areas in the future.

“ Vietnam holds technologies that we do not, while Nicaragua possesses large, fertile land. Therefore I see a lot of prospects for cooperation,” he affirmed.

During their visit to Vietnam from April 2-6, the FSLN officials had talks with a CPV delegation headed by Hoang Binh Quan, Head of CPV Central Committee’s Commission for External Relations.

The delegation was received by Le Hong Anh, Politburo member and Standing member of the Secretariat of the CPV Central Committee and worked with the National Assembly Committee for External Affairs and the Communist Review.-VNA
